As the capital of Taiwan, Taipei is a popular holiday destination in Asia. This metropolitan city is usually where most travellers to Taiwan will stop over for a few days before moving on to explore other parts of the beautiful country. If that’s exactly what you are planning to do for your next vacation to Taiwan, I highly recommend you to stay at Just Sleep Ximending in Taipei!
Centrally located in Taipei with easy accessibility to other attractions
Located about 5 minutes’ walk to Ximen Station exit 5, Just Sleep Ximending is a small boutique hotel occupying levels 5 to 9 of an office building along Hankou Street Section 1 in the Wanhua District of Taipei. There is also an underground link to the station right in front of the hotel, if you prefer not to walk along the roads. There are 2 lines serving Ximen Station – the green line no. 3 and the blue line no. 5. It is just a convenient station away from Taipei Main Station on the blue line, where you can access the railway, high speed rail and intercity buses to get to other parts of Taiwan.
Stay in the source of Taiwan’s fashion and Japanese culture
Just Sleep is the ideal location for you to explore Ximending – the “Harajuku of Taipei”, just a stone’s throw away at Ximen Station exit 6. It is a pedestrian shopping haven with an extensive range of fashion clothing outlets, diverse restaurants, clubs and bars. Many Chinese pop entertainers also like to hold promotional concerts for new album launches in the area, so see if you are lucky to be star-struck when you visit. In addition, Ximending also features several other famous cultural and historical landmarks such as the Red House Theatre and Mazu Temple waiting for you to discover.
Cosy hotel room with smart and modern touches for a pleasant stay
As you step into the superior twin room, it evokes a cosy and warm feeling with its modern decor. There is smart use of every inch of space without making you feel cramped, such as laying the 2 single beds head-to-head instead of the side-by-side layout in most standard hotel rooms. This creates more walking space in the room and I’m sure you will love that! The beds are so comfortable that you may have a tough time waking up every morning.
In between the two snug beds is a little couch, where you can relax and watch your favourite TV programs on the flat-screen TV mounted on the wall. No need to fight over work space with your travel mate as there are two long work desks on both sides of the TV! Besides, interesting yet easy-to-understand icons are drawn on each amenity provided, such as a money icon for the safe and a man-in-shower icon to represent the shower. Of course, just like many other hotels in Taiwan, Just Sleep provides free stable wireless internet connection. A great room to stay in, isn’t it?
Thoughtfulness everywhere in the hotel
The thoughtfulness of Just Sleep’s management not only reflects in the room, but also extends to all areas of the hotel. Upon stepping out of the elevator on each floor, you will find a vending machine with cushioned seats. There is also a self-service laundry room with a washing machine and a dryer on level 6, complimentary use for all hotel guests. Furthermore, daily breakfast at Just café on level 5 is included in the hotel booking. You are also free to access the Café from 11am to 10pm to read the newspapers and magazines, or enjoy some beverages with fruits and snacks.
Definitely a hotel that offers much more than a good sleep
With a seemingly clichéd hotel name, it’s easy to think that Just Sleep is a basic hotel to sleep and rest in for your Taipei stay. However, this sleek boutique hotel not only allows you to catch up on your sleep with its body contouring cosy bed, it also provides thoughtfully designed amenities, as well as a great location. For a night of about 4,100 TWD (125 USD) per superior twin room per night, rest assured a smart traveller like you will not feel short-changed during your stay!
